Skip to comments.Feds ID CA man's role in anti-Islam film..(Obama wants blasphemy laws enforced in US?)

Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department officials had opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other diplomats killed during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi. It was not immediately clear whether authorities were focusing on the California filmmaker as part of that probe.
A federal law enforcement official said Thursday that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was the man behind "Innocence of Muslims," a film denigrating Islam and the Prophet Muhammad that sparked protests earlier in the week in Egypt and Libya and now in Yemen. U.S. authorities are investigating whether the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya came during a terrorist attack.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation, said Nakoula was connected to the persona of Sam Bacile, a figure who initially claimed to be the writer and director of the film. But Bacile quickly turned out to a false identity and the Associated Press traced a cellphone number used by Bacile to a southern California house where Nakoula was found.

The US has blasphemy laws now??
The feds are desperately trying to distract from Obama’s disaster.
This man is just a cheesy Hollywood film-maker. There are hundreds if not thousands like him.
He made a dumb movie; others performed assasinations.
There is absolutely no mystery here and NO moral equivalency even though they're now trying to make him some kind of scapegoat.
When Hussein ran, we investigated a PLUMBER who asked ONE question.
When ONE reporter questioned Hussein ONE time, they chased him from the presser all the way down to the Washington Monument.
How is this different?
Seems you may be right.
This poor man is in no way responsible.
OK. They solved the case in WORLD RECORD TIME. These guys must be geniuses.
Funny how everything else in front of the DOJ takes years to resolve, or even get documents on.
Oh well, they have a scapegoat to blame it all on.
If this is true, we better here from some high ranking senators- pronto. This is not the American way.
It will only lead to many more things being found on the web that muslims find offensive......as soon as I come up with something good.
Ah, the media. Forever fronting evil.
In my mind, there is a revolving squirrel cage at the bottom of hell, because even Satan can't figure out who should be at the bottom.
Lawyers, Media, Politicians, Bureaucrats, Public Educators, Bankers, Liberals, Leftists, RINOs, around and around and around it goes.
And that's just the religious people.
A DOJ which...
1. Considered it OK if armed men in combat boots and berets threatened voters on election day...
2. Smuggled 2,500 machine-guns to Mexican drug-dealers, then tried to set up the people they’d asked to help them in their plan (which killed 2 cops and 250 poor Mexicans)...
Would they do THIS? I think that’s obvious, and I think Holder’s DOJ is being fairly honest and consistent about their treachery.
Obama did say he would seek justice. I guess he means justice for Islam.
It is not immediately clear that Yahoo is a news organization...
The person who produced this film is disgusting. It is not immediately clear whether he is a Coptic Christian as he may have claimed. I am convinced that the Obama administration's only possible motives for revealing his identity are evil. It is inexcusable to violate the privacy of this person, except in a court of law, even if he is responsible for a phenomenally terrible movie that was used as an excuse for serious violence.
I want anti-Constitutional blasphemers FIRED.....Barack!
Why is the US using its resources to track down someone who broke no law?
It is no freaking business of the feds (or anyone else) who made that film. So long as it doesn’t called for armed insurrection or the death of someone it is 100% within the law.
People who would trash our First Amendment Rights are scarier than any terrorist.
Why do you say that?
So will this make it ok for President Romney to go after Matt and Trey for “The Book of Mormon”?
They have it all wrong.
The GREATEST issue that we as a nation has with this whole debacle is the VERY concerning effects that Mitt Romney's speech has on the situation since HE is just a candidate for POTUS. /s
They are trying to deflect from the fact they helped put al-Qaeda rebel thugs in power in Libya.
Fast and Furious North Africa division.
The only thing worse than that movie is that there are actually morons who want to censor it.
dfwgator ~ Why do you say that?
Because he told the truth?
Well .. according to Michelle my belle, the real national security issue is: WE HAVE TOO MANY FAT PEOPLE.
January 20,2013 cannot come soon enough!!
Nov 6 will be wonderful - because I’m convinced Romney will win, but then we still have to put up with O for more than 60 days.
so it’s probably best i don’t publish my multi-choice koran treatment webpage
read... delete... burn... pee.. puree ... all the normal options afforded the bible by american progressives
i wonder if i’ll still get that national art funding for my ‘72 hairy v-jaja’s covering mo-ham-med in a jar of pig-urine... wrapped in bacon’
i figured if they gave one out for the ‘abstract representation’ of the virgin Mary, then mine would be a shoe in for a grant and maybe a place in the NY metro museum of art
Why was the movie dumb ? They didnt kill anyone because of the movie. They hate America. Another attack on freedom
And this is my point...they didn't kill anyone because a low-budget flick. They're using it as an excuse.
Islamic blasphemy laws in the US? Well I guess what the DOJ will do is classify it as hate speech. So anything said against Islam will bring the DOJ in.
Zero is trying to cover his a$$ and pointing the finger at someone else.
Osama is dead and GM is alive.
What did the embassy burners chant?
We are all Osama.
Would anyone be surprised if a GM Plant was unexpectedly attacked?
Check out post # 18 in the link I just posted.
It is amazing to me how many people forget about the first amendment.
Just need to stoke the fire, under two months now . . . /sig
How about because the movie is so poorly done that it cannot educate, inform, or even change attitudes. All it can do is cause boredom in decent people or violent anger in Muslims. Creating a movie for either purpose is worse than disappointing. Does anyone, even someone who agrees completely with its portrayal of Islam, think that even one viewer would take this film seriously as an educational tool? There are a lot of productive things that could be done to fight Islam's violent spread, including movies that could be made. Why did this person waste his time on such an inept movie?
And doing so over a hastily-contrived media manufactured (at the behest of the WH) excuse for the goings on this week.
Because the Barack Hussein Obama regime is hoping that once they publicly identify the person who made the so-called movie, then muslims in the US will track the guy down and kill him. The Regime hopes that this will then assuage the tender, hurt feelings of all of all of those Arab/Muslim savages in Egypt and Libya and thus quiet the situation down.
Anybody but the Hussein Obama Regime to take the blame will do. The Regime will willfully endanger or cause the murder of anyone in order to cover up it's foreign policy ineptitude or its collusion in aiding the worldwide expansion of repressive totalitarian Islam.
Come and arrest me or behead me.
If you can.
Thanks, maybe a set-up by Obama in order to get the blasphemy laws instituted?
May God keep and protect America from these evil enemies within.
Feds are setting him up for assasination now....idiots.
I have already heard a claim that our ambassador was raped before he was murdered ,,, was that true ???
Or tie him up into the investigation and force him to be silent and not go on Fox to tell his story. What I’d like to know is who “marketed “ this film in Egypt. If it’s so offensive to Islam it shouldn’t have been shown in the first place. Right? Find out who it was and then we’ll start to find the truth. I suspect it has little to do with the film or Copts.
I’m not sure if he was raped, the Washington Yimes reported on it last night tho, they were monitoring news in Libya, and a newscast and paper reported it.
It has happened to other victims of the Islamists, even Lawrence of Arabia.
